Since its premiere on Filipino primetime television, Halik has been a success both in ratings and in social media noise. It boasts of a powerhouse cast that includes Jericho Rosales, Sam Milby, Yen Santos, and Yam Concepcion who all portray characters that make-up the classic telenovela formula of ABS-CBN. Just recently, a younger generation of cast members composed of Gab Lagman, Jane de Leon, and JC Alcantara were introduced on the show. These three young and upcoming actors are no strangers to the showbiz industry. Having film and television credentials that most rookies don’t have, this trio will definitely make things in Halik more interesting.
In an exclusive interview, we get to know the three young actors who will not only get to join the lead cast of Halik but also get their own storyline on the show as well.
INSIDE SHOWBIZ: Can you tell us about the characters that you guys are playing in Halik?
Gab: I’m portraying Gio Corpuz, the brother of Ace Corpuz (Sam Milby), and here I have a burger business. Magiging employee ko si Maggie (Jane). Doon mag-rerevolve yung story. Kuya ni Maggie si Lino (Jericho Rosales) and kuya ko si Ace so parang magkaka-clash.
Jane: So I’m Maggie here, kapatid ko po si kuya Echo. Maggie is a working student. Palaban, makulit and malambing. Makikilala niya si Gio (Gab Lagman) and si Bogs (JC Alcantara). Sabi nga ni Gab magiging employee niya po ako. Crush ko dito si Gab, si Gio.
JC: Ako naman po dito si Bogs, laking mahirap. Inampon ako ni Kuya Lino (Jericho), tapos nag-work ako para sa kanya, hanggang sa makilala ko si Maggie na kapatid niya pala. Ngayon mas inspired ako mag-work kay Kuya Lino dahil sa kapatid niyang si Maggie. Kaya palagi ko siyang inaabangan.
What makes your love triangle exciting?
Jane: Si Maggie and Bogs para silang aso’t pusa talaga. Makikita mo talaga yung conflict sa kanilang dalawa and when it comes to Maggie and Gio dun mo naman makikita yung spark and yung kilig. Meron din namang kilig kay Bogs and Maggie. Siguro yung pinagkaiba is hindi siya yung common na makikita mo na parang laging nag-aagawan, plus involved yung mga family namin.
So parang Romeo and Juliet?
Jane: Yes, parang ganun.
To Jane, what kind of love does Maggie deserve?
Jane: Yung love ni Kuya Lino. That will start sa love for family talaga eh, kasi ganun yung ginagawa ni Kuya Lino.
For the boys, let’s start with you Gab. Why do you think Maggie should end up with your character, Gio?
Gab: Because sa tingin ko hindi expect ng tao na kami yung magkakatuluyan. Siyempre ang alam ng tao na magka-away pamilya namin so in the end pag ipinaglaban namin na maging kami.
JC: Siguro kasi si Bogs, hindi mahalaga yung yaman at mga material na bagay sakanya. Tsaka yung effort ni Bogs talagang binibigay niya ang lahat para kay Maggie. Kaya dapat mas piliin niya si Bogs (laughs).
How bad do you want Maggie to end up with your character?
JC: Kung ano ang mas gugstuhin ng tao doon lang ako. Kasi nakikita ko rin yung effort ni Bogs eh.
How are you guys on set?
Gab: Actually were good friends, us three. On set siyempre sa characters magka-competition kami ni JC pero off set naman there’s no competition. We’re always helping each other na maging okay yung chemistry naming tatlo.
Do you guys hangout outside of work?
Jane: Yeah, actually kami ni Jc. We went to Baguio na! We’re all planning to go to a haunted house for Halloween together.
Gab: Oo, sa haunted house abangan niyo ako dun.
Ano ang kailangang abangan ng viewers sa upcoming episodes?
Jane: Marami eh. Ngayon pa lang makikita mo na intense na yung mga eksena so mas kaabang-abang na yung mga sususnod na mangyayari. Ang daming mga twists and every episode bagong pasabog na kailangan abangan.
